Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Brilliant pale gold. Intense nose with spicy cinnamon over yellow peaches and French nougat aromas, with just a hint of burnt sugar syrup. Palate is rich, powerful and impossibly long with peaches and barley sugar flavours all kept in check by deft acidity."
95/100 James Halliday's Wine Companion, August 2020 (2017 Vintage)
"Golden yellow-orange hue; De Bortoli has been out on its own with this wine since ‘82. It’s complex, with glace fruits and spices yet doesn’t cloy. Serve fully chilled and wait for the fireworks."
